Blogging Biographies

When was the last time you read a biography or autobiography?
The question is; how to find a good one? Below you will find a few highly recommended biographies, either through reviews (New York Times, NPR, etc.) or …hmmmm….other blogs (librarian). You will find these titles and others in Helen Hall Library on a bookshelf next to the stairs and across from the music CD’s. If you need help finding more, ask a librarian. Please take a look and ….
